Product Description
ABOUT THIS WORKBOOK
This picture book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, is a challenging text with interesting vocabulary and beautiful pictures. The Common Core standards emphasize the importance of getting students to be able to read such challenging texts by teaching them vocabulary and word analysis skills, and by requiring close reading of the text to develop comprehension. This workbook provides pre-reading activities which give the students enough scaffolding to read the text independently. The post-reading activities guide the students’ comprehension of the text. The writing activities ask the students to produce paragraphs for different purposes, consolidating the information and personalizing it.

We divided the book into 4 sections:
➢ Section 1: pages 1-11
➢ Section 2: pages 12-19
➢ Section 3: pages 20-29
➢ Section 4: pages 30-31
We numbered the pages with a sharpie, starting with #1 on the title page. The questions requiring close reading of the text frequently ask students to refer to a specific page. (Why didn’t the publisher put page numbers? We have to wonder)

For each of the 4 sections, the workbook contains:
➢ 2 pages of pre-reading word skills activities
➢ 2 pages of comprehension activities
➢ 2 page of writing (pre-writing and paragraph writing)

The workbook can be finished in a minimum of 8 days; if you spend more time on drafting and re-writing, you can spend 12 or more days all together.

Foundational skills covered:
➢ Spelling and pronounciation of +ed suffix
